That's funny. Asking them for a salary.

Your point is well taken though. Just like they loved the fans and Jerry opted to give them the music for free, we love them and return the favor by spreading it. This has most certainly helped their revenue over the years.

This is a case in point about my theory... good band, music traded freely and understanding/appreciation of said music grows due to distro of music (and we know it wasn't the studio works that locked people in)... the band gets "bigger". The boys were, not surprisingly, way ahead of the power curve... striking new ground. Yet another reason I consider Garcia to be one of the greatest artistic geniuses to have ever lived... Like when Mozart broke into the "free agent" status of music (though he died poor, his actions truly revolutionized the music scene).
